Clean up the Windows To Go drive
(11-22-2014, 08:42 AM)davidinfodom Wrote: Hi All,
I just installed a 8.1 Enterprise on WinToGo disk.
And so I of course tried to connect the drive on several different machines, just to test if it was really working on any machine or not: of course it worked great each time.
Thus I realized something: each time you connect the WinToGo on a new machine, it will first install new files to adapt itself to the host so it can run smoothly.
Therefore each time we do that, the available free space on the disk is of course decreasing.
So here comes the question : is there a way to clean up the WinToGo drive to remove all the files which match a host we won't use anymore ?

Hoping someone will know, I thank you in advance for your feedback.


(Also just for information for those who would be interested : my WinToGo drive is an SSD Crucial M500 240Gb, placed in an IcyBox USB 3.0 compatible UASP.
And honestly this Win 8.1 ToGo drive works much faster than my current Win 7 x64 host system standing an WD500gb !! Really awesome Smile )
Hi David, have a look at this page using Dism commands to remove old drivers and decrease the Windows installation removing unused files:
